Nashville rocks Asheville October 3rd with Pop’icana Singer-Songwriters Sarah Clanton, Carrie Welling and special guest Andy Beckey, This variety show is a cello-bration of the unexpected!
Sarah Clanton is bringing people together and building a feel-good machine. The Nashville singer-songwriter, who has brought the classical and pop worlds together with her use of a cello, rather than a guitar, to front one of Music City’s most unique bands, has been on a feel-good mission since long before she plucked her way into town. But it’s never been more apparent than on her new album, Here We Are.
“Here We Are contains eleven of the most stylishly produced pop songs I’ve ever heard in my life, and unlike her closest contemporaries’ output it contains absolutely zero filler... There’s no need for any debate; Sarah Clanton is the most exciting artist in all of pop music right now, and Here We Are sees her arriving at the primetime stage ready to lead a new generation of music fans into the future”
— NO DEPRESSION
The newly minted indie pop songstress has carved a remarkable path of sound and story, with all roads leading to her recent rebirth as a solo artist in Nashville, TN. Her bold, rich voice, reminiscent of Natalie Maines and Stevie Nicks, is upstaged only by the genuine love and confidence this natural performer exudes on stage.
Melodies rich in country roots, paired with edgy rock lyrics drenched in Welling’s city-bred past are stunningly showcased in “The Edge,” Welling’s latest EP, produced by Dave Pittenger and crowd-funded through independent artist ambassador, Pledge Music.
Although this midwestern punk-rocker may have moved to Nashville years ago, you won’t find him down on Broadway choking the life out of “classic” rock and country covers. More akin to trailblazers like Johnny Cash and Joey Ramone, you won’t find him cranking out anything cookie-cutter bro- country bullshit.
Undeniably entertaining with his twisted sense of humor and the dark, gritty songwriting influence of Tom Waits, Beckey growls out gut-bucket blues accompanied by a psycho-billy guitar barrage, à la the Reverend Horton Heat. Whatever he does, it’ll feel like you’re riding shotgun in a tanker truck full of Wild Turkey down a mountain road. And, oh yeah, he cut the brake lines.
